The Element and Class ideas

I am reading The Element which is essentially based on the premise that we all learn differently and have different strengths and weaknesses. It has gotten me thinking (which is almost always a bad else could be do to make your learning experience better/more fulfilling?

So while I can not alter the syllabus, I have some ideas that could be used as a project for SIMM, used to up a poor case in 402 (or maybe as 20% bonus on the final), and/or a bonus/extra credit in 610.

This is not required and definitely not an exhaustive list. Just a few things that came to mind that sound fun.
  • A video presentation (at least 10 minutes) on anything tied to finance. For instance, do a case study but make it a video.
  • A summary of important finance papers that could be shared online with others not only in class but with anyone anywhere.
  • A presentation(?) that could be used locally at maybe the WW II Musuem (?) or on campus showing Wall Street at War? Or Wall Street during the Depression? or ???
  • A web-quality presentation on local finance jobs that could be shared with future classes (sort of a what do finance people do locally)
  • Other things??
If any of this sounds like something you would like to do, let me know.
